“It was fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

It was a nice stop but we went for a late lunch and found out they don't serve food til after 5 p.m. but they can call a few other places and have them deliver to them. Prices were not bad for the area. Just a nice little stop to relax for a few in a classic dive bar.

“Great Dive Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

What can I say, I liked the place. Full of locals with party spirit. When I'm in Estes Park, I'll have another drink there and dodge the "Karaoke Scene" down the street. Laid back bartender never missed a beat.

“Best bar in Estes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Oh yeah! It's the place we hit every single time we go. It feels homey and the bartenders know how to make whatever you want. They are also friendly and we get into conversations with them and the locals each time.

“A dive bar at its finest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I went here with friends for cocktails on a Friday night. There was billiards, television, classic rock playing and loads of locals. The drinks were strong and not too pricy. The service was good and friendly. You will get a taste of the local scene in Estes Park.

“Good Food.. What?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012 via mobile

Little behind writing my review and I probably never would have except after reading other reviews I had to clarify one thing. They don't serve food, at least when we were there. We were given a short list of places that would deliver to the bar, but that isn't what were looking for and in our opinions was not cool. Unless things have changed in the last 3 months any food you order will be delivered to you from another restaurant.
